GLIBC 2.7 needed to install nasm!


I used "su -c'yum install nasm" in the terminal and it said installed successfully. But when I tried to run it:"rpm -ivh nasm-2.05.01-2.fc11.ppc.rpm" it said file not found. I used the software installer and it said"Missing Dependency: libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.7) is needed by package nasm". This file is said to be obsolete. what do I do?

doesn't gel.

Either you install via yum ,or you install from an rpm you downloaded.

What is the output of
rpm -qa | sort -u


?



Cheers,

I really appreciate the help. But I desperately need those helpers to understand that I am completely new to this kind of thing and I'ts hard to understand some of the terminology used in many of these posts. I'd like to figure it out though and with the help of some very understanding and bright individuals I just might be able to figure out how to get my "main menu panel" back onto my desktop. I've taken notes on every bit of info i've received and none of it so far has been able to help me get it back. As for the 'nasm install' I'm close to giving up on it because noone has been able to figure it out so far. The program installer would install it if I had the (LIBC) file that I need but I've searched for it and can't find one. everywhere I go to find it says"file not found" or "this version of libc is obsolete. The terminal is a very complicated place to input commands because whether I like it or not I don't know, understand, or speak computer code. Please don't riddle me w/ answers I can't learn from. If you know the answer to my problem. please give it to me straight. Someone who doesn't know what they're talking about wont be able to give a "turn-key solution". I have been wracking my brain around the solution for over a month now so if u expect a newbie to just figure it all out at once your sorely mistaken. I am a hard working father of two and don't have the time to go to colledge to learn what it is I need to get this silly program running. Thanks all for your support. and thank-you for your understanding.

I am running yellow dog linux ver.6.2 on my ps3 and my main goal is to get the main menu panel back onto my desktop screen, and to get nasm installed so that my boys can have something to do while I'm at work. Feel free to ask me any questions you have about the software. This place is my last and only hope to getting snes to work. please help if you know something! Thank-you

Opening the terminal window, and typing
1) su
2) yum install nasm
... is all it takes. And do not use any "rpm" command !

' yum install nasm ' provides the nasm compiler.
Which I guess, you need. So why do more ? ?

'nasm' : ""General-purpose x86 assembler. It supports a range of
object file formats including Linux a.out and ELF, COFF, etc.""
So what do you need it for ?

'rpm -qa | grep nasm' : shows nasm installed or not.

.....
.....
Restoring your desktop to default settings : Probably delete
the hidden files /home/<user>/.gnome*
.. log out .. and log in again :
a new set of default config files will be created.

If you have one panel left : Right click it > Add panel.
Right clicking a new panel will also allow you to position it :
top, bottom, left, right.
.....

P.S. : Please never touch glibc. GLIBC is your system.
Changing it : You will have to reinstall the whole OS.
.....

By the way, the nasm assembler is for x86 which will be pretty useless on a PowerPC based box like a Playstation3. If you want to learn PPC assembly, you should download an assembler for that architecture.

knudfl,
Can u please explain: Restoring your desktop to default settings : Probably delete
the hidden files /home/<user>/.gnome*

This is the download of nasm that I have been trying to install: nasm-2.05.01-2.fc11.ppc.rpm

and here is what the terminal gives me after running the yum install nasm command:

Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
Nothing to do

Quote:
delete /home/<user>/.gnome2/
Means : delete it.

Actually I am not quite sure where the panel settings are kept.
If no difference after deleting " .gnome2/ " :
Delete /home/<user>/.config/
... Log out ... log in again.
The third option : Delete /home/<user>/.local/
... Log out ... ...
But haven't you still got one of the panels on your Desktop ?
It should be easy to add a new panel and position it anywhere.
And afterwards add all the things, you want in that panel.



Problems with nasm :
Please explain why you want it installed.
What will you use it for ?
( Can only be used for files, that are not present or usable
on a PS3 ( x86 files )).
The command : ls /lib/ld-*
.. will tell, which glibc, you have.
Then it should be no problem pointing to an URL with a usable nasm binary.

Knudfl,

Hey! I got my menu panel to come back up thanks to you!

Anyway, about the nasm problem. I used the commands in the terminal you told me and this is what came up.

/lib/ld-2.5.so /lib/ld-lsb-ppc32.so.3

They were highlighted different colors:Left green, Right blue

As I said before, I'm needing the nasm file to run snes. I read through the readme file for the snes collection and it gave a command to use:

sh ./autogen.sh && gmake && gmake install

when I used it in the terminal it said that nasm was needed.
and that's why i've been on the hunt for a nasm file that will be compatible for ydl. I'm guessing that the file would look something like: (nasm*.ppc.rpm) but when I did find one it said i needed GLIBC 2.7 to install it. Here is the file I found that I tried to install:

nasm-2.05.01-2.fc11.ppc.rpm

Thankyou so much for the help! I'm thrilled to have the main menu bar back up!

I found a good set of instructions for snes. I got it to work and the games will play but I have no way to actually play them because the keyboard won't work for the controls. There is supposed to be a way to get the sixaxis controller for the PS3 to work with it but one of the links they give you for the proper downloads won't work. try yourself if you don't believe me:

http://ximian.orst.edu/pub/ydl/relea...dog-6.0/SRPMS/

Is there any other way to get the controls to respond? I've been googleing all day long trying to get it to work but there is always a link that won't work or a file that can't be found. Can't I just use the keyboard or the mouse? In the options menu for snex9x theres a way to switch controls to;
Joystick
Mouse
Multitap
Superscope
I've tried messing with them all and cant get the game to respond at all.Please help if u know something. Thankyou Knudfl for getting me this far. You the man!
